All 30 Triple-A teams to implement electronic strike zone this season: report

Jan 13, 2023

The times they are a changing — but baseball purists, you might want to look away.

Triple-A baseball will implement electronic strike zones for the 2023 season in all 30 stadiums, according to ESPN.

The ABS (automatic balls and strikes) system will be used in two ways: half the games will be called strictly based on the system, while teams in the other half will be able to challenge the umpire's ruling, with the system making the final call.

In the games where challenges will be allowed, both teams will get three each, and they will retain each successful challenge, ESPN notes.

Major League Baseball will use the data and feedback from both systems for its future decisions on putting the ABS at the big-league level.
